Well, I suppose I am in the mood to ensure the stability and pleasure of my sewing loft! I have the Janome 8002D, mine is ages old, but I’ve been trying to purchase a backup for over a year.
As is the case with many goods, the machine has not been available. But – I found it yesterday on Amazon, only 10 in stock, and I ordered mine.
I imagine it will be a bit updated, but anything different will be subtle. I love this serger. It’s not ‘expensive’ at $299, it’s a powerhouse, it’s easy to thread, and, yes, it’s quiet.
Meanwhile, I’ve ordered a new upper cutting knife for my in-house Janome 8002D. Lately I’ve been getting lots of lint and some chunky cuts – I need a new knife. This is my third knife for this serger, but believe me, a new cutting blade can make the machine sew like new. I put a lot of mileage on my machines, and I try to take good care of them.
BTW, I really enjoy shopping machines and parts at Sewing Machine Plus. I would have purchased my new serger there, but they are out of stock. The staff and service are great, so they remain are my go-to machine site.
And that’s that! Ciao – Coco
p.s. my new Juki Exceed HZL-F300 sewing machine just arrived! oh, wow…
